About Global Campus

Global Campus is a programme of events that celebrate the diversity of our community. 

We organise weekly cafes and several trips per semester to provide a platform for our international and UK students to meet, explore the UK and share cultural learning. 

All our events are open to both UK and international students, we would love to see you at some of our events.

What's involved in the Global Campus programme?

Global Campus Trips

Global campus trips offers an oppurtunity to explore the north of England on a small budget. This semester we are offering trips to Liverpool, Fountains Abbey and Whitby Seaside. 

Find out more about each trip on our Global Campus Trips page.


Global Campus Bulletin

The global bulletin is a weekly email that we send out to our students containing lots of useful information about events in York, activities on campus, and the different types of support the university offers to help students make the most of their time at York St John. The bulletin also contains lots of ideas for things to experience whilst in the UK, such as eating fish and chips or trying a roast dinner, so students can truly immerse themselves in British Culture.
